How To Gather Your Allies Baldur’s Gate 3

Gather your Allies is the penultimate quest in Baldur's Gate 3 which represents the results of your actions throughout the adventure.

Gather Your Allies is one of the main line quests in Baldur’s Gate 3. This quest is the final quest in Act 3 right before the final boss fight. This is more of a preparation for the player to recruit allies to fight against the boss Netherbrain – however decisions taken during previous quests and acts would play some role in recruiting the friends.

How to complete Baldur’s Gate 3 Gather your Allies quest

BG3 Gather Your Allies quest starts as soon as you enter the Upper City and begin the final march against the Netherbrain. However, while it may seem like this is a quest where you have to find allies, you actually don’t. You have been gathering your allies in Baldur’s Gate 3 since the start of the game. People who you are friendly with or have helped out will automatically appear in the tavern before you enter the gates.

As such, the BG3 Gather Your Allies quest gets completed automatically once you reach the point of no return. Below we have mentioned all the allies you can recruit to help you in the fight against the Mind Flayers and Netherbrain
